ABOUT THE BAMBOOVEMENT
Are you also tired to see beaches covered in plastic? Seeing another video of a turtle or dolphin choking in
plastic? And, do you want to prevent that in 2050 there’ll be more plastic than fish in our oceans?
The Bamboovement was founded to tackle plastic pollution and make our planet a cleaner place once again. How? By replacing daily used plastic products with sustainable alternatives. Together with a handful of like-minded people we work everyday on innovative ideas to rid our world of plastic waste.
While you’re reading this, 5.25 trillion pieces of macro- and micro plastics are currently littering our oceans. Making up for 60 – 90% of all marine debris. Every single day 8 million pieces are being added. This is one full garbage truck that is being dumped into the oceans every minute. Animals are suffering – every year, as a direct result of ocean plastic, more than one million seabirds and 100.000 other sea animals die.
But plastic is being recycled?
Just 9% of all plastic is recycled worldwide. Why? A lot of plastic products are not made to be recycled, like coffee cups, straws, bags and cutlery. Most of the times your toothbrush or coffee cup will end in a landfill, from here it’s a short way to our waterways and eventually to our oceans. Every product of The Bamboovement contributes to making our world a little more clean and beautiful once again.
